Crumble top coffee cake that's moist and addictive! The only coffee cake recipe you'll ever need! —Oat&Sesame

What You'll Need
  • Cake
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour (sub 1/4 cup whole wheat if desired)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups or more blueberries, fresh of frozen
  • Crumble Topping
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup crumbled almond paste, optional
  1. Heat oven to 375°F. Butter a 9-inch square pan. For the cake: In a large bowl, beat softened butter and sugar until blended. Add milk and egg. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add to butter mixture and mix just until combined. The batter will be very thick. Carefully fold in blueberries. Scoop the mixture into buttered pan and gently press it out evenly.
  2. For the crumble topping: Combine all topping ingredients in food processor or use a fork/fingers to combine until crumbles (large and small) form. Sprinkle evenly over batter. Bake at 375°F for 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 20 to 30 minutes before serving.

Eating a piece right now, still a bit warm from the oven. Beautiful, moist, tender, just sweet enough. All I did differently was add a teaspoon of vanilla to the batter. Very nice recipe, thank you for sharing it!
